Minor A Championship Quarter-Final
Caulry 5-10
St Lomans 3-10
Our minor lads progressed to a semi-final of this year’s Minor A Championship with their victory over St Lomans on Wednesday evening last in the local park.
St Lomans hit the ground running with a fine point from play inside the opening 60 seconds. A point from Sean Clinton drew level. However, the Mullingar men dominated proceedings early in the game as they rattled the back of the Caulry net on the 2nd minute. The opposition then scored an unanswered 1-1 to leave seven points the margin. Points from Conor McCormack and Jack Bradbury Hughes drew two back. Eoin Shortall and Kevin O’Flaherty defended well as a great pass from McCormack found Emmet Nally who hit the back of the opposition’s net. Further points from McCormack and Matthew Nally meant the sides were level, 1-5 to 2-2, by the quarter-hour mark. The teams exchanged goals, with Jack Bradbury Hughes on target for the homeside. The St Lomans’ goalie denied us a goal as Bradbury Hughes and Emmet Nally settle for points just before the halftime whistle to leave Caulry leading 2-7 to 3-2.
On the resumption, some good combined teamwork from Sean Woods and Sean Clinton enabled Emmet Nally to get his second goal of the evening. St Lomans pointed to reduce the deficit. However, our lads began to push on with Neil Clinton and Sean Fox having superb games in defence. Colin Murphy fielded well as Cialan Dollard added to the scoring tally on the 36th minute. McCormack sent the ball to the back of the St Lomans net after Caulry were awarded a penalty to leave eight points between the sides. The St Lomans lads worked hard and tapped over two unanswered points to narrow the margins by the 41st minute. However, our lads proved to be the hungrier side on the evening with another well-taken goal from Woods. Jack Connaughton brought off a great save in goals as scores from Murphy and McCormack allowed our lads to push on. Three late points for the Mullingar boys meant Caulry secured a semi-final spot with the scoreboard reading 5-10 to 3-10 at the fulltime whistle.

Division 1 ACFL
Caulry 0-5
Garrycastle 2-10
Caulry made the short journey to Garrycastle on a blustery Saturday evening last for their latest Division 1 ACFL fixture where the homeside ran out comfortable winners on a scoreline of 2-10 to 0-5.
Garrycastle were first off the mark with a fine point from play. David Brookes registered Caulry’s first score of the evening on the 2nd minute. Ben Moran and Kevin Maguire defended well as both sides exchanged some wides early in the half. The opposition went in front with a goal on the 13th minute. John Maguire fielded well while James Pettit had a good game in defence. However, Garrycastle began to build up a commanding lead with three points in quick succession. Our lads seemed to sit back as the opposition rallied on to lead 2-5 to 0-1 at the interval.
After the break, Caulry were slow to settle, missing some scoring opportunities. A pointed-free from Conor McCormack narrowed the deficit on the 44th minute. The teams traded scores with Brookes on target for Caulry. Ultimately, Garrycastle were the hungrier side on the evening and ran out worthy winners on a scoreline of 2-10 to 0-5.
